dagger bannerAfternoon, lovelies.

I’d like to apologize for missing my stop on the tour on Saturday. I’ve been ill with the Flu, and spent all of Saturday and the better part of yesterday in bed because of it.

Thankfully, I’m doing a tad better, and am slowly, but surely catching up on things.

Thanks for your patience, and again, my apologies for being a little late in posting up my review.

For as long as anyone can remember, Trell of the Tides has lived his life in the shadows. Many assumed him to be dead. Others think him to be a figment of their imaginations. For Trell, however, his entire life has been lived in difficulty. A battle fought long ago robbed him of a good portion of his life. Though there are things he does remember, quite a bit of his past is shrouded in darkness, something he abhors as each day passes.

Determined to make sense of things, Trell embarks on a journey that will soon test his mettle. Though he’s experienced many hardships, nothing has prepared him for what’s been heading his way. The enemy is intent on doing away with him, hell-bent on erasing his entire existence. He knows he’ll need to overcome the obstacles littered across his path. Doing so won’t be easy, but he’s willing to do whatever is necessary to stand on his own feet.

As the secrets of Trell’s past soon start coming to the light, he becomes cognizant of the fact that there are those willing to keep those secrets from being known. The attempts on his life grow each and every day. So much so, that he finds himself warding off the enemy at every turn. He refuses to succumb to the enemy’s demands. Wrongs must be made right. He will make sure that everything is as they should be, or die trying in the process.

A lovely start to this series, Cephrael’s Hand immerses you in the lives of quite a few characters. I’ve focused on Trell because his storyline is definitely gripping, though the rest must not be ignored. Melissa has created a complex world full of intrigue, betrayal, and deceit that captures the reader’s attention in such a way that leaves you wanting to read more. The emotions injected throughout the story certainly pour off the page. There’s more to these diverse characters, and I can’t wait to see what else Melissa has to bring to the table.

About the book: Cephrael’s Hand

“All things are composed of patterns…” And within the pattern of the realm of Alorin, three strands must cross:

In Alorin…three hundred years after the genocidal Adept Wars, the realm is dying, and the blessed Adept race dies with it. One man holds the secret to reverting this decline: Bjorn van Gelderan, a dangerous and enigmatic man whose shocking betrayal three centuries past earned him a traitor’s brand. It is the Adept Vestal Raine D’Lacourte’s mission to learn what Bjorn knows in the hope of salvaging his race. But first he’ll have to find him…

In the kingdom of Dannym…the young Prince Ean val Lorian faces a tenuous future as the last living heir to the coveted Eagle Throne. When his blood-brother is slain during a failed assassination, Ean embarks on a desperate hunt for the man responsible. Yet his advisors have their own agendas, and his quest for vengeance leads him ever deeper into a sinuous plot masterminded by a mysterious and powerful man, the one they call First Lord…

In the Nadori desert…tormented by the missing pieces of his life, a soldier named Trell heads off to uncover the truth of his shadowed past. But when disaster places him in the debt of Wildlings sworn to the First Lord, Trell begins to suspect a deadlier, darker secret motivating them.

About the book: “A Pattern of Shadow & Light Book 2

At long last, the reason for the blessed Adept race’s decline has been discovered: powerful beings known as Malorin’athgul are disrupting the Balance and preventing Alorin’s Adepts from awakening to their gifts. Who are they? Where are they? And how can they be stopped when they wield a power meant to unmake the universe itself?

In T’khendar…Prince Ean val Lorian has forsaken his companions in blood and battle to join the traitorous Fifth Vestal in T’khendar in the hopes of gaining some insight into the tragedies that plagued his Return. Now he must confront the man he’s long thought of as his enemy and discover the role he is meant to play in the First Lord’s darkly magnificent game.

The Vestal Raine D’Lacourte has followed his traitorous oath-brother Björn through six kingdoms and into the distant realm of T’khendar seeking explanation and atonement. But the condemned realm harbors shocking secrets, and Raine soon realizes he’s facing his greatest enemy yet—not in Björn, but in the truth.

Elsewhere in Alorin…the young truthreader, Tanis, faces a new villain in the fiery-eyed man he followed from the café in Rethynnea; the soldier Trell struggles to reconcile his growing feelings for the girl he rescued from the river against the guilt of his unknown past; and in Tambarré, another truthreader named Kjieran van Stone treads the incense-filled hallways of the Prophet Bethamin’s temple hoping to uncover a plot of treachery and betrayal before the Prophet demands his soul.

The time has come for each player to claim his role in the First Lord’s masterful game. All will be tested, but only time will tell how many can survive the dagger of Adendigaeth.
Get The Dagger of Adendigaeth through Amazon or Barnes & Noble.
